"Who are their People? My grandmother used to ask me this whenever we discussed anyone. She wanted to know family connections. Like her I want to know "My People". This blog is about that discovery.

Oh, the people I met !

    Attending NGS2014 was a fantastic experience. I learned so much and set some new goals.
    Meeting lots of great people was one of the very best parts of the conference. Recognizing each other from FaceBook, Google+ and Twitter  pictures was so much fun!

   I wish I had taken more pictures. The days were just going by so fast!

Here are some I did take:
Lisa Alzo



Jenny Lanctot

Shannon Combs-Bennett

Josh Taylor

Jen Baldwin

Dear Myrt

Colleen Pasquale


Next Gen Group
Janie Darby, Barry Kline, Shannon Combs-Bennett,
 Kim Jordan, Jen Baldwin, Josh Taylor, Melanie Frick

   There were many others who sat with me during lectures and luncheons, talked to me on the bus and in the hallways. They gave me advice, support and became a friend.

  Why didn't I get a picture with Charlotte Bell, Bernice Bennett, Shelley Bishop, Rorey Cathcart, Susan Clark, Cheri Daniels, Terri Fraser, Paul Hawthorn, Tonia Kendrick, Wendy Mathias, Linda McCauley, Angela McGhie, Maureen Taylor, Judy Russell and many others? Hopefully, we will see each other soon and I can get those pictures!

   It was also fun to run into the people from the Grand Strand Genealogy Cub and those that I know from my South Carolina Genealogy FaceBook groups.  

Thank you all for helping to make my experience this year so wonderful!
